Looking for some opinions/advice for decorating our hall please! We are going for a stripey stair runner and wooden floor on ground level - the walls will be neutral. One thing I cannot make my mind up on, please can you help?
We have a victorian house and the hall has a dado rail and a picture rail and nice cornicing at the very top. Do we:
- Paint the 3 areas on the wall (from top of skirting up to cornicing) the same colour and the ceiling a slightly lighter neautral (so there is some contrast with the nice cornicing which will be painted white, as will the dado/picture rails) OR
- paint the two lower levels (skirting up to dado and then dado up to picture rail) the same colour and above the picture rail the same colour as the ceiling?
Waaa - I cannot decide. Want the hall to look light and calm, which the colours are, but just not sure which look would be best. I also want the hall to look as large as possible (it is fairly big anyway tbh). The colours we are going for are natural taupe 3 for the lower part and natural taupe 4 for the upper part.www.dulux.co.uk/colour/natural_taupe_3 Please let me know what you think please!
